Today, more than ever, peopfe are Intrigued by crime-story novels, movies, and murder "whodunits." Angela 
Lansbury's Murder, She Wrote, Stephen King's Pet Sematary (Cemetery), modern renditions of Hitchcock's murder 
mysteries, and other evidence leads us to believe that there is more to a puzzle or mystery than the often complicated 

Peopfe are drawn to mystery. We want to figure out how the pieces of life's puzzle tit together. We are all looking for 
the solutions to our problems. Consequenlly, we are usually brought together to solve a common problem. Sometimes 
our puzzles can be solved by concentration. Others take the cooperation of friends. The unity of students here at Surry 
Community College reflects our common goal of seeking the keys that unlock life's mysteries and puzzles.

"AN wise men share one trait in common: the ability to listen," If this 
proverb holds true, then Tony Searcy Is certainly wise. He has Job's 
patience, Samson's fortitude, and King David's leadership. His Achil-

friendship, support, or assistance. A SCC graduate himself, Searcy 
returned to his alma mater as a counselor in 1988. He taught P,E. full- 
time fast fall, but resumed counseling duties in Winter Quarter. 

Searcy obtained B.S. and M.A. degrees from ASU (1979, 1980).

Introducing students to college routines and to the

aboul, The morning program, held Wednesday, Aug. 
29, 1990, began in the gymnasium with a welcome from 
Dr. Jim Reeves and a motivational performance by Dale 
VanHorn. Those who attended enthusiastically agreed 
that VanHorn was an exceptional speaker and wonder- 
ful performer who overcame a handicap that would 
have devastated most people. No doubt he was making 
a difference in the lives of those who heard him speak. 

After a short break, freshmen were encouraged to 
attend workshops that provided information concerning 
registration and records, transferring lrarn Surry, study 
skills, personal changes and social growth, "Making the 
Adjustment to College — How Things Really Are," and 
"Another Hat to Wear" (geared particularly toward stu- 
dents with full-time jobs and families). 

A picnic lunch was served around 1 2:30, following a 
brief meeting ol students and advisors. Second-year 
students and SG A members provided tours for students 
who were unfamiliar with the campus.

Surry Community College provides 
firsthand information for students 
who plan to transfer to a senior col- 
lege or university. College Transfer 
Counselor Sue Jarvis plans programs 
to assist students in transferring. The 
annual Educational Opportunity Ses- 
sions scheduled by the CACRAO 
(Carolines Association of Collegiate 
Registrars and Admissions Officers), 
held on September 25, provided one 
such opportunity. Seniors from area 

high schools and students from SCC 
talked with representatives from 34 
colleges and six branches of the 
Armed Forces. 

"University Day," held October 3. 
offered SCO students interested in 
transferring to a state-supported uni- 
versity a similar opportunity to talk 
with transfer admissions personnel.

12 Student Appreciation Day 

A StMr 

k day in May is eagerly antici- 
pated by both students and staff 
at Surry Community College, 
That day is Student Appreciation 
Day, Students are dismissed 
around ten o'clock and are given 
the rest of the day off from class- 
es so that they can receive aca- 
demic recognition and partici- 
pate in on-campus recreational 

The idea for this commemora- 
tive occasion was proposed by 
Dr. Jim Reeves, Vice-President of 
Student Services, to reward stu- 
dents for their grades, conduct, 
and respect for school property. 
No one remembers exactly how 
long ago the celebration began, 
but most appreciate the tempo- 
rary break. They all seem to en- 
joy the food, events, and enter- 
tainment. Being honored as a 
student and having all day to 
gather with friends lightens

unity among students and facul-

During Student Appreciation Day students are served 

lunch consisting of hotdogs, hamburgers, and all the 

trimmings in an outdoor atmosphere. Students 

participate in various activities, contests, events, and 

socialize with their friends. 

In contrast to previous years. Student Appreciation 

Day went more smoothly in terms of student behavior. 

More students actually participated \n the activities that 

were planned for them. Some students may even have 

shared the knowledge and proverbs they accumulated 

throughout the year with their friends. Some of these 

words of wisdom may have included: "Pandoras Rule: 

Never open a box you didn't close/' or "The problem 

with having leisure time is how to keep other people 

from using it," Or perhaps they were thinking: "What 

this country needs is a good self-destructive campaign 

poster." Or "Tact is the art of thinking twice before 

saying nothing." 

Student Appreciation Day gave the students a 

chance to intermingle with friends and to add yet 

another key piece to their memories of college life.

Surry County was estab- 
lished in 1770. Dobson is 
ihe county seat. This north- 
western border county was 
named in honor of Surry 
County. England, birth- 
place of incumbent gover- 
nor William Tyron, 

Surry County has many 
trademarks. The Mount 
Airy Granite Quarry. Pilot 
Mountain State Park, and 
Chatham Blanket Mills of 
Elkin are among the most 

The Mount Airy Granite 
Quarry is the largest open- 
faced granite quarry in the 
world. The quarry is located 
about one mile east of 
Mount Airy on Route 103. 
Once considered worthless, 
the quarry sold for 50 cents 
an acre; rock was thrown in 
free. Thomas Woodrofle 
and Sons started quarrying 
the rock in the late 1880s. 

Pilot Mountain State 
Park, attracting many tour- 
ists, is another trade mark 
of Surry County. Pilot 
Mountain, a large quartzite 
momadnock, rises 1,500 
feet above the surrounding 
countryside. A five mile 
300-foot wide woodland 
corridor for hiking and 
horseback riding divides 
the park into two sections. 
The park is located 24 miles 
north of Winston-Salem. 
Hwy. 52. 

Mr. Alexander Chatham, 
in partnership with Thomas 
Lenior Gwyn, in 1878. be- 
gan the operation of a small 
woolen mill — Gwyn and 
Chatham — on Big Elkin 

In 1890. Chatham and 
Sons became full owners of 
the company and Chatham 
Blanket Mills of Elkin has 
become world renowned.

Commencement (or graduation) 
is both a new beginning and an end- 
ing. Even the word commencement 
has connotations of a new start. 
But, just as graduation is a new be- 
ginning, it is also a time to reflect on 
the past. Now students must plan 
for the future and what it holds. 

The future may mean transferring to 
a four-year institution or entering the 
job market. 

Of course, graduation is also a time 
for excitement, as graduates receive 
degrees and recognition for their ac- 
complishments. Graduation Day is, af- 
ter all, a goal realized, a link between 

yesterday's dreams and tomorrow's 
successes. As Booker T, Washing- 
ton observed: "Success is to be 
measured not so much by the posi- 
tion one has reached in life as by the 
obstacles which he has overcome 
while trying to succeed."

Adult Basic Education (ABE) is 
available to adults who wish to 
learn to read and write, improve 
math skills, or prepare tor entry 
into the High School Equivalency 
Program, Math and history are 
also emphasized. Even practical 
skills such as using a telephone 
directory, reading road signs, 
counting money, and completing 
job applications may be incorpo- 
rated, depending on student 

The High School Completion 
Program is designed to prepare 
adults for Tests of General Edu- 
cational Development (GED). In- 
struction is provided on an indi- 
vidual basis, so each student has 
a program of study designed to 
meet his specific needs. Upon 
successful completion of the pro- 
gram and a satisfactory score on 
the GED Tests, students are is- 
sued North Carolina high school 
equivalency diplomas. 

ABE /GED classes are held in 
local communities — Boonville, 
Dobson, Elkfn, Mt. Airy, Pilot 
Mtn. r and Yadkinville. Students 
enroll in these programs for a va- 
riety of reasons: to acquire bet- 
ter, higher-paying jobs: to obtain 
skills that enable (hem to help 
their own children with home- 
work; to provide personal satis- 
faction and a sense of accom- 
plishment. After all, no one can 
take away an individual's educa- 
tion. As Immanuel Kant said in 
1803, "Education is an art. the 
practice of which can become 
perfect only through many gener- 
ations. Each generation, provid- 
ed with the knowledge of the pro- 
ceding one, can more and more 
bring about an education, which 
will develop man's natural gifts in 
due proportion and relation to 
their end, and thus advance the 
whole human race toward its

course taught by SCC Instructor Wan-

(EDP 100} introduces students lo fun-

such as these may provide personal 
fulfillment, background lor further 
studies, and/ or preparation lor ca- 
reers. As available employment de-

ence of "baby boomers" in tha 
workforce — employers throughout 
I he country are demanding higher 
educational standards.

able to address questions and lo help 
students solve the problems they en- 
counter with the Individualized Instruc- 
tional programs. In preparation for 
their GED tests, students often spend 
three or four nights each week in the 
lab. Mastery of the material and peri- 
odical testing are necessary in order 
to meet North Carolina standards for 
general education. 01 course, stu- 
dents do have an occasional minute or 
two to just chat, but most students 
complete their studies as quickly and 
independently as possible. 

Sherri Hutchens and Patricia Byrd 
concentrate on two different subjects. 
Both are preparing lor the GED (Gen- 
eral Educational Development) Testa. 
One way to prepare lor the examina- 
tion is to work through a series of ex- 
ercise books and to endeavor to solve 
the various problems set before them. 
Intense concentration, a commorv 
sonse approach, and inductive and 
deductive reasoning are frequently 
employed. Byrd plans to enroH at SCC

"Lots of times I thought. 'I wish 
I'd gone on and finished school," 
explains Jones. So, when a Pilot 
Hosiery Mill co-worker suggested 
that they enroll in a high school

found herself back in school.

She was surprised that so many

"Kids today," she believes,

Surry Community College offers several College Trans- 
fer programs in the field of science including biology, 
chemistry, physics, and the physical sciences. Biology is 
the study of life. "Life" Is a way of capturing and systemat- 
ically using energy and materials. Chemistry, a vibrant, 
growing science, is of fundamental importance not only to 
all the other sciences and modern technology, but also to 
any explanation of the material things around us. Physics 
Is based on measurement. The student then starts to learn 
how to measure the physical quantities in terms of which 
the laws of physics are expressed. 

The physical sciences Include Chemisty Survey. Physics 
Survey, and MeleoroJogy-Geology-Astronomy. Chemistry 
Survey includes studies of the basic concepts of chemistry 
and the properties of elements. Physics Survey includes 
studies of measurements, gravity, mechanics, and atomic 
properties. Meterology-Geology-Astronomy includes top- 
ics such as the atmosphere, the earth's past, and the solar 
systems. Laboratories In these programs involve the indi- 
vidual student's interaction with other students to familiar- 
ize themselves with equipment, techniques, chemicals. 
weather, animals, planets, and the human body.

A student in the machin- 
ist program can either re- 
ceive a one-year diploma or 
an Associate in Applied 
Science degree. 

The one-year program in- 
troduces the student to the 
machinist trade with an un- 
derstanding of layout tools, 
procedures, and the ability 
to operate many kinds of 
machinery. The program 
will also give students back- 
ground knowledge of the 
physical properties of fer- 
rous and nonferrous metals. 


Students can enroll on a 
part-time basis or complete 
a one-year program for a 
vocational diploma. The 
one-year program consists 
of oxyacelylene. arc, and 
inert gas welding; some 
courses in reading blue- 
prints and communication 
skills; and basic mathemat- 
ics classes.

The intramural volleyball program at 
SCC resumed on October 3, 1990. 
With eight teams in the program this 
year, students as well as the faculty 
had a good time. The volleyball games 
allow hard-working students to take a 
break from the stress of the classroom, 
to enjoy themselves, and to compete 
against their favorite instructors. 

This year's team coaches were Surry 
No, 1 (Betsi Pendergrass), Guys and 
Gals (Dale Reid), Co-Ed Crew (Scotty 
Pardue), Faculty (Tony Searcy), Chaos 
(Scotty Wilson). Surry Killers (Andy 
Kiser), Buffalo Soldiers (Patrick Mar- 
shall) and Side Out (Tracy Jennings).

were: Surry, Caldwell, 
Wilkes, and Catawba Valley 
Community Colleges, Un- 
der the double elimination 
format. Surry drew Cataw- 
ba Valley in the first round 
and swept two quick games 
in a best two out of three 
contest and moved to the 
winner's bracket to face 
Wilkes. Surry won that 
match in a hard fought best 
of three (15-9, 12-15, and 
18-16) In what was the best 
match of the day. Wilkes 
then knocked off Caldwell 
and again met Surry. Wilkes 
won the best two out of 
three. Surry played gallant- 

ly; but, due to lack of depth, 
the team ran out of gas 
(losing 15-11, 17-19, and 
15-11). Wilkes won the 
championship match (15- 
12. and 15-8), 

On November 28 Surry 
hosted Forsyth Tech and 
swept three straight games 
(15-6, 15-8. and 15-3).

The name "soft ball" is a bit of a misnomer 
since the ball is nearly as hard as a baseball. 
The game is generally understood to have origi- 
nated as an indoor game around 1887, was 
then referred to as indoor baseball, and was 
probably played with a softer ball.

The 1989-90 electrical 
class started its club under 
the supervision of Randy 
LeQuire to further their edu- 
cations in the electrical 
field, and lo educate local 
children about electricity 
and how to use it safely. 
"Sparky" is a costumed 
character created by last 
year's club for just that pur- 
pose. The class visited all of 
the local elementary 
schools teaching its electri- 
cal safety program to kin- 
dergarten through third- 
grade children. 

The 1990-91 class has a 
more extensive electrical 
safety program to present 
to twice as many schools in 
North Carolina and Virginia. 

Last year's class spon- 
sored a free Safety Home 

Inspection Program. They 
inspected many locally 
owned home, some owned 
by the elderly. This year 
they have begun working 
on similar homes with elec- 
trical problems in and 
around Surry County. 

Local merchants helped 
sponsor a safety coloring 
book that the club and Le- 
Quire designed and copy- 
righted for the safety pro- 
gram. The salety coloring 
book was also distributed 
at this year's ML Airy Au- 
tumn Leaves Festival. 

Future plans include 
building a small trailer lo

cal supplies, toots, and

Few know better than Debbi 
Eld ridge that there are times to be 
serious and times to have fun. Non- 
teaching and teaching personnel 
Interact socially and professionally. 
Faculty, staff, and students relate to 
each other as dictated by necessity, 
desire, or circumstance. 

Whether one's responsibilities 
involve administrative, support staff, 
or teaching duties, the job offers 
numerous rewards. The human traits 
that Surry employees possess and 
the behavior the/ exhibit are sources 
of both humor and admiration.

Twenty-two-year-old Tommy 
Thompson has a primary interest in 
finance, but his interests are well- 
rounded as he spends up to 14 
hours each week as a D.J. Like 
other students Thompson has found 
a home here at SGG, but he looks 
forward to transferring to 
Appalachian State Universiiy in May. 
At Appalachian Thompson plans to 
major in finance, and his goal in life 
is to be a music production Tycoon. 

During his leisure time Thompson 
enjoys weight-lifting and tennis. 

Hobbles usually cost money, rather than earn 
it, so, when a hobby becomes a career, it is 

twice as enjoyable.
